Strawberry Letter 23: To Be Or Not?
Good morning Steve Harvey and your entire crew. My family seems to be having issues and I just don’t understand why we are having these problems and/or if there is anything I can do to help the family get on its right track. I have a mother and dad who have been married for many years. Sometime ago my dad cheated on my mother, she forgave but never forgot, needless to say they have decided to stay together. But sometime after my dad cheating on my mom, my mother turned around and did the same thing.
I know two wrongs don’t make a right, but I was young (a teenager) and was on my mothers side of the situation. I pushed for it until I felt like it was just too much to handle. I couldn’t stand the fact that this new man in her life was becoming so important to her. Sometime after her affair started my dad found out, I guess thanks to me. After me revealing the secret and my feelings to an unknown source, my mom feels she can never trust me again. But they seemed to have worked it out and once again decided to stay together. To make a long story short, I just found out that my mother and her lover maybe still at it and my dad still talks and do whatever he pleases to whomever. My mother cries and worries her brain about where my father is and who he’s with. Why are my parents still together when its obvious that they want to do their own thing? I know they can’t be staying together for the kids because we are all grown (ages 24-19), out of the house, and capable of dealing with a divorce. And what am I to do to help our family? I don’t want to be the bearer of bad news and cause a horrible uproar like I did many years ago. Please help?
